Medical Marijuana User Detained for Possession in Washington D.C.

Ed Forchion, aka “The New Jersey Weedman” and his friend Daniel Price, who both have medical marijuana licenses, attempted to go to Washington D.C. where Forchion would be speaking at an event. While going through a security checkpoint, Price was detained for bringing his medical marijuana onto federal property where it is illegal to possess. Forchion gave us this statement afterwards:

“This is a example of The irrational war on drugs at its finest – here on the lawn of our capital citizens arrested and persecuted for a plant! This is the reason we now lead the world in the imprisoned we are not the bastion of a Freedom we once were – Return freedom to America / End the drug war.”
